Perhaps people will pay attention to the signs out front that say "Do not enter caves during rainy season." :(

Navy SEALs Rushing to Teach Trapped Thailand Soccer Team How to Swim, Scuba Dive


Quote:

Today's update

Quote:
Four of 12 Thai schoolboys who became stranded with their soccer coach more 16 days ago in a flooded cave were removed from the underground complex in northern Thailand on Sunday and rushed to hospital, officials said.

The operation to rescue the boys, ages 11-16, and their 25-year-old coach by having them dive out of the Tham Luang Nang Non cave began earlier in the day, with expert divers embarking on the complicated and dangerous mission.
